A sailing trip is the best way to see and get around the bay! Trips are more personalised and in smaller groups and worth the extra money. We had an awesome trip and amazing time and felt safe and week looked after while enjoying the beautiful San Francisco Bay!

We were in SF with another couple and weren't sure what to do as far as activities with them. We are not the tour bus stand in line kinda, people. I took a chance and booked 3 hrs with Capt. John. It was so cool, we met him at a yacht club and he picked us up at the dock... More

We were in SFO for a long weekend and out day out on the Great Escape was the highlight of our trip! First - the boat is beautiful, clean and well maintained. However, this does not compare to the amazing service from Captain Mike and First Mate Allie. They were not only a total blast to be with but they... More

Even before Capt. Mike gives you the "Permission to come aboard!", you just feel that you are in for an incredible time. I never imagined that in one sailing trip I would see and learn so much. From the stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, to the close-up looks at Alcatraz, the beautiful evening skyline of San Francisco, and... More

The whole staff obviously loves what they do and did their utmost to make sure everyone was enjoying the sail and comfortable. Very hands on if you want to participate as you... More

From the moment I called Captain John Yelda, I felt I was in good hands. I was traveling with my niece and nephew and wanted to make sure the boat was new, clean, and extremely seaworthy and the captain would be safe, afford the kids to learn something about sailing, and make sure our trip was pleasant. John and I... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
